Regular price on this thing is 150$ and I haven't seen a sale on this for some weeks now.

I was in the market for one so this is a deal for me.

Looks like bhphotovideo has same price

Biggest difference to me is the minimal time navigating or buffering. Picture a 1mbps internet vs 100mbps.

I am amazed at how responsive my 1st gen shield is compared to my Xbox one x.

Such a great user experience with the shield and while both can stream 4K, one can do it a lot better than the other.

Try one out and see for yourself. Or maybe find a side-side comparison on UI navigation.

Not exaggerating, from the shield being off/standby, within about 3-5 seconds I can open Netflix, scroll to my latest show, select to play the episode, and the episode will be loaded and playing.

My Xbox will take at least 2-3x as long, even if already on. And of course maybe 10-20x as long if off.

Definitely wait for the Pro version. I waited on the 2017 for a few months and then it hit 139 minus Google checkout coupon.

These sales clearly indicate the tube version didn't sell like they thought it would. The Pro clearly is staying put at 199 because of consistent demand, so it seems.

The cheap but fluid GUI and function experience option in the interim would be the Firestick 4k. Aside from dealing w seeing ads in the GUI, it's the best bang for buck.. And being $25 w that code that runs the rest of the year, it's a great deal.

I'm tempted for my casual watching 1080p TV (currently has a Mi Box S), but would like the additional 1GB of RAM to just be future proof as these apps are getting bigger and bigger each day. Not sure why they have only 2GB of RAM when the 5 year old 2015 Shield has 3GB.

I don't want to have to replace it because apps start lagging in 2-3 years.

Same, would rather wait for the Pro. I am curious to test that 4K upscaling, willing to pay discounted price but wait longer to get it.

I still don't understand what the Shield can do that the firestick can't for a tiny fraction of the price.

I have a last gen shield too, but there are cheap alternatives now, sooooo... why? Yeah it can run a plex server I suppose, but it'd be a crappy one.

Shield has a faster SoC (same as the new Switch ), nvidia's proprietary upscaling and graphics techs, a rather open and stock Android TV...but if you're just using it to stream 4k movies and whatnot, there won't be much of a difference

Im using for TV. Roku pretty limited and doesn't run android TV. Also nice to have for gaming for emulators and android games esp with support of decent gaming controllers ie ps4 and xbox

So i have live channels through HDhomerun + OTA antennae then just random network apps with netflix and plex for my own media.
